Most Frequent Causes for Washer won't spin

Cause 1Lid Switch Assembly

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not spin. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test the lid switch for continuity. If the lid switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Cause 3Drive Pulley

The drive pulley connects to the washer drum and works with the drive belt and motor to rotate the drum. If the drive pulley is worn out, the drive belt might slip off, preventing the washer from spinning. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it. If the drive pulley is defective, replace it.

Cause 4Tub Bearing

The tub bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub of the washing machine. The tub bearing helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. If the tub bearing is defective, it can lock up and prevent the washer from spinning. The washer may also make a loud rumbling noise. Replacing the tub bearing is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the tub bearing is defective, we recommend replacing both the outer tub and bearing as an assembly.

Cause 6Bearing

The bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub. The bearing helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. If the tub bearing is defective, and the bearing is sold separately, replace it. If the bearing is not available separately, replace the outer tub and bearing as an assembly. Replacing the outer tub and bearing is a difficult and costly repair—if the bearing is defective, consider replacing the entire washing machine.

Cause 7Drive Motor

The drive motor might be defective. However, the drive motor is rarely at fault for this symptom. Before replacing the drive motor, first check all of the more commonly defective washer components. If none of those components are defective, consider replacing the drive motor. To determine if the drive motor is defective, first ensure that the motor is getting power. If the drive motor hums but doesn’t run, is noisy, or does not turn freely, replace it.

Cause 8Transmission

The washer transmission might be worn out or defective. Transmissions have gears in them that can fail causing the washer to not spin. However, this is almost never the case. Before replacing the transmission, first check all of the other more commonly defective parts.
